A READER suggests in a letter (Daily Echo, October 13) that the horrific parking problem around the Fairisle schools can be resolved with residents’ parking permits and “a few signs”. If only it were that simple!

RE the recent flooding at Bridge Road, Woolston, is it a coincidence that there has been some work on and under the bridge lately which may have contributed to the flooding as I can’t remember it being flooded like that in the past?

IF the MPs were to grant the nurses, midwifes and other medical staff the same privilege that they enjoy themselves ie, the power to grant their own pay rises, as the MPs did when granting themselves their recent 11 per cent pay rise, wouldn’t this stop all these strikes etc?

I AM very sceptical of the advice given by Public Health England, that it has “listened very carefully to all concerns expressed regarding transferring patients’ personal health records to a giant computer database and will put in place safeguards to protect their records.”

WHILST these days we accept them, I do believe that before the dreaded “elf ’n safety” got involved in just about every aspect of our lives the felled landmark Monterey pine in Park Gate would have received a different approach.

MY home town of Romsey in Hamshire has a branch of WH Smith. Not an uncommon site in many towns and high streets throughout the UK, in fact a shop that is a household name. In a small market town, such as Romsey, WH Smith is the only place available for the purchase of office stationery and a bonus for local business.

MY husband is receiving treatment at Southampton General Hospital, and I would like to say a very big “thank you” to all the staff on C3 for raising £15,000 for 30 new chairs for the patients’ waiting area.

WITH regard to the ongoing fluoridation scandal (Daily Echo, October 1), it is clear that one of the most difficult things is to convince those with the power to impose this scheme of the elementary fact that the purpose of a water supply is to supply water.

WITH reference to recent articles on parking of parents’ cars at Fairisle School, this is not an isolated problem, it happens at schools of all ages, all over Southampton/Hampshire, and most of them sort it out themselves, without any moans and groans.

AS a visitor to the New Forest and a user of the London “Boris Bike” hire scheme, I was puzzled by the explanation offered by the National Park Authority for abandoning the cycle hire scheme for which they had applied, and been awarded, a “Cycle Ambition” grant out of National funds.

I WHOLLY endorse your readers’ letters of September 11 and 16 regarding the cost people who are suffering from dementia have to pay out of their own pockets through no fault of their own. Both my parents are suffering from dementia which is a chronic medical condition and is due to the breakdown of brain functions.
